I don’t remember it being much of an assessment to be honest. They chatted a bit about my falls, weighed and measured me and then I had a try out in an indoor electric chair. (I can’t self propel) A couple of weeks later they came to assess my house (check the plugs ec) and then I got my indoor chair.
The assessment for an indoor/outdoor chair was a bit more indepth – I had to test drive a chair outside. There was more detailed discussion about what I would use the chair for – walking the dog etc. I had a specific chair in mind so I was quite keen to steer the discussion in that direction! I also had to have an eye test.
I had another home visit to check outside access this time and then a couple of months later I got the wonderful chair I have now. Good Luck
PS Each area is different but here in Leeds the prescribing criteria for an indoor/outdoor electric chair is that you need it full time – they will prescribe manual ones for occasional use but not electric
